Minneapolis. Ahead of World Day Against Trafficking in Persons, CWT, the business-to-business-for-employees (B2B4E) travel management platform, is proud to sign The Code of Conduct for the Protection of Children from Sexual Exploitation in Travel and Tourism (The Code). The Code is a partnership initiative between the travel and tourism sector and ECPAT, a global non-profit organization working to protect children from trafficking, sexual exploitation, and online abuse. By becoming a member of The Code, travel and tourism companies gain access to tools and resources to use in their daily operations. CWT is an active and longstanding supporter in the fight against human trafficking, dedicated to The Code’s efforts to raise awareness externally, engage employees internally, develop more effective policies, research, and build tools against human trafficking and child sexual exploitation. “Every child in the world has the right to grow up free from the fear of exploitation and have a decent and safe life. It is paramount that we all stay vigilant, and hopefully businesses like ours can help make that a reality”, says Lauren Aste, Executive Vice President & Chief Legal Officer. “Signing The Code from ECPAT marks CWT’s continuous commitment and leadership to keeping children safe anywhere around the world.” “ECPAT-USA is thrilled that CWT remains a steadfast ambassador and partner of The Code, lending its unwavering support to our child protection programs in truly meaningful ways. We thank CWT for its continued leadership in the anti-trafficking movement,” said Yvonne Chen, Director of Private Sector Engagement, ECPAT-USA. By signing The Code, CWT has committed to uphold the six criteria of The Code, including establishing policies and procedures, training employees, implementing contractual clauses, providing information to travelers and engaging with stakeholders on prevention and annually reporting on all related activities.
